Public Affairs

With decades of experience in the public sector, our team understands how to solve problems and identify opportunities for clients. We blend strategic thinking and deep institutional knowledge of the public decision-making environment with effective community engagement to advise our clients and drive successful outcomes.

Government Relations

We help clients throughout the public process to engage elected officials and key decision makers, draft policy proposals, build coalitions, and advocate for proposed solutions.

Community Engagement

Community is at the core of public projects and opportunities. Our team understands this, and works with clients to build authentic community partnerships that are responsive to community needs and help develop community support.

Public Relations

Crafting and delivering key messages is fundamental to any successful client engagement. That includes developing internal and external communications strategies, media relations, and stakeholder engagement aimed at delivering the right message to the right audience at the right time.

Political Campaigns

Our team has experience consulting on a variety of political campaigns from major infrastructure initiatives to individual candidates. We work with clients every step of the way and advise on media relations, community engagement, and voter activation to build broad coalitions that propel clients to victory.


Our experienced team of public affairs veterans has decades of relevant experience working with clients across a variety of industries to drive successful outcomes. We view our client relationships as partnerships, working together every step of the way to ensure our shared strategies align with an organization’s goals, priorities, and culture.
